It was another sunny day on Granville Island for me and our Vancouver Opera In Schools Manager, Melissa Tsang. This was our third trip in as many weeks to visit Emily Carr University of Art and Design where we had the pleasure of working with illustration students in their Professional Applications class. The students were tasked with creating an illustration for VOIS' 2013-2014 production of The Barber of Barkerville ... and did they ever deliver!
The process was both rewarding and difficult with so many fantastic submissions to choose from. It was a tough choice but in the end we awarded the commission to Danielle Jette for her fresh and fun take on this production. You can see more of her work at www.daniellejette.com
A big thank you to all the students who submitted illustrations and to ECUAD Professors Durwin Talon and Justin Novak for the amazing opportunity to work with these talented emerging artists.
This is a partnership that I hope continues for a long time. The illustration students at ECUAD are producing some very impressive work - and who doesn't love a field trip?
